Jakobson - Round 21
Drake gazed at the baby, scanning each feature & hoping to see no familiarity. It would be much easier for him to be able to deny paternity. "Marissa is at her sister's for the time," he said sadly.
Ah, Vamsi thought, smiling. "She left you?"
"You needn't look so happy about it," Drake growled. "May I hold him?"
Vamsi handed him over without hesitation. "I named him Dierk Pai Jakobson."
Drake nodded as he cradled his first born son in his arms. "I suppose we should discuss child support. Or would you prefer to go through the courts?"
Scowling, Vamsi glared. "Business first, as always!"
Vamsi led him through her home to the spare room she'd set up the stylish crib.
Drake tenderly put Dierk in his crib, then whirled on Vamsi. "Anything between you and I has long since faded. All that remains between us is business & our son. I think I made that perfectly clear!"
(Ah! The first time I've ever seen someone lecture a baby! Yay! Oh... I mean.. poor little Dierk! Vamsi is going to be that kind of mother!)
Quickly, she befriended her immediate supervisor, Mr. Cameron.
It never hurt to enjoy a few happy hours with the coworkers!
Vamsi cupped her hand at her ear and yelled back, "What did you say?"
Robert took the opportunity to lean closer. "I said I like your hair!"
Smiling, Vamsi danced a little closer.
Quietly, he stroked his hand down her cheek. "I'll see you tomorrow at work, Ms. Jakobson."
Hearing the boy crying in the kitchen, Vamsi scooped him up and plopped him in bed. Hopefully the nanny changed his diaper before bedtime, because she was not changing that dirty thing!
